Why would I need Neurophysiology?

Neurophysiology assesses the function of the nervous system. Tests, performed by a consultant Clinical Neurophysiologist, such as nerve conduction studies (NCS) and electromyograph (EMG) can help in assessing suspected disorders/diseases of the peripheral nerves or muscles. The test results may also help your doctor decide on which treatment option is best for you.
Common reasons for referral include:
Peripheral neuropathies, including demyelinating neuropathies
Entrapment neuropathies such as carpal tunnel syndrome or ulnar neuropathy
Radiculopathies (nerve root compression)
Motor neurone disease
Muscle diseases
